This newcomer to one of Kraków's most ancient, romantic and exclusive streets has wasted no time in establishing itself among the city's finest restaurants, winning a 2018 World Luxury Restaurant Award for best restaurant serving Polish Cuisine in the world. Such outrageous praise usually precedes disappointment, but Art Restaurant makes and sustains an immediate impression of splendour as you enter under an enormous crystal chandelier beneath which a pianist performs on a white grand piano. In warm weather enjoy the quiet courtyard garden full of plants and lanterns, which lighten the formality of the five-star, white-glove service; in winter the historical ambiance of the 16th century building suffices. The food is Polish at its most modern and innovative; any lack of creativity exhibited in the naming of this restaurant has been put into the artistic dishes coming out of the kitchen. The a la carte menu is extremely concise and changes seasonally; to truly appreciate what a treat the food is, splash out for the 7- or 9-course tasting menu (239/289zł), with optional wine pairing from their exemplary cellar, or signature cocktails from the bar. An afternoon 5-course lunch is also available for only 69zł. Is this the best dining experience in town? If the question even bears pondering, and it does, then do yourself a favour, make a reservation, and decide for yourself.
